A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.

Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

.308 Winchester For Sale

A friend of mine who lives in Port Gibson, MS, Dennis Staer, is wanting to sell his Savage Model 99-C lever action rifle caliber .308 Win.   It is brand new, and he even has the box it came in.  He bought it back in ’98 when Savage re-introduced it for its 100th anniversary.  It is a fine piece, he said.  It has a recoil pad and a really nice “oil finished” walnut stock.  He added a 3 x 9 telescopic sight, bore sighted it and fired it 3 times to zero it at 100 yards.  He also bought a second 5-round magazine for it. Then he put it on his rifle rack with the rest of his guns and has not touched it since. (except to inspect and clean it of course)  

Below are a couple of photos for you to see what it looks like.  He is asking $750.00 for it (which is about what he has in it and needs to make room for his other guns).  If he has to...he will move a little.
If you are interested you can email, Dennis, at and let him know that you heard about it from Marian on her blog, Marian's Hunting Stories, etc., etc., etc.
